1: Therefore, my brothers, beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand firm in the Lord, my beloved. 2: I exhort Euodia, and I exhort Syntyche, to think the same way in the Lord. 3: Yes, I beg you also, true yoke-fellow, help these women, for they labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life. 4: Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I will say, Rejoice! 5: Let your mildness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. 6: In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7: The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus. 8: Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think about these things. 9: The things which you learned, received, heard, and saw in me: do these things, and the God of peace will be with you. 10: But I rejoice in the Lord greatly, that now at length you have revived your thought for me; in which you did indeed take thought, but you lacked opportunity. 11: Not that I speak in respect to lack, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content in it. 12: I know how to be humbled, and I know also how to abound. In everything and in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in need. 13: I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. 14: However you did well that you had fellowship with my affliction. 15: You yourselves also know, you Philippians, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no assembly had fellowship with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you only. 16: For even in Thessalonica you sent once and again to my need. 17: Not that I seek for the gift, but I seek for the fruit that increases to your account. 18: But I have all things, and abound. I am filled, having received from Epaphroditus the things that came from you, a sweet-smelling fragrance, an acceptable and well-pleasing sacrifice to God. 19: My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20: Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever! Amen. 21: Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you. 22: All the saints greet you, especially those who are of Caesar's household. 23: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
